Director: Yim Soon-Rye
Yim's debut is a daring mix of lighthearted comedy and drama portraying Korea's Generation X. Independent, Fatso and Petal are three friends who have failed their college entrance examination. Panicked by being called up for military service, Independent attempts suicide, Fatso intentionally puts on weight to fail the medical and Petal hopes that joining the military will prove his masculinity. Their real quandary is an emotional vacuum they cannot fill, created by social values they cannot identify with.
